The Elixir of Love // Welsh National Opera

"In keeping with the action, this is a vocally high-class evening... Natalie Christie's Adina is ideally light and agile but without the hints of neurosis that define her relationship with Nemorino from the start... in a score that is pretty much the definition of what bel canto should be. It's all perfectly nice. Is it too churlish to ask for more?"
